Makita cordless tools are engineered for industrial applications, and for added protection during the most demanding jobs Makita created STAR Protection Computer Controls™. STAR is communications technology that monitors conditions during use, allowing the tool and battery to exchange data to protect against overloading, overdischarging and overheating. If STAR detects conditions that threaten to overload, overdischarge or overheat the tool or battery, the tool will automatically stop. At that time the user can either restart the tool, change or charge the battery, and put the tool back to work. When you slide a Makita 18V LXT® battery with the STAR symbol onto a Makita tool that has either the STAR symbol or a yellow terminal, you are benefitting from STAR Protection Computer Controls™.
Makita’s 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Cordless Angle Impact Driver (model XLT01) delivers cordless impact power into tough to reach spaces. The versatile XLT01 packs plenty of torque for a wide range of fastening and loosening tasks, yet it weighs just 3.9 lbs. with a slim design and over one foot of tool extension.
It’s part of Makita’s expanding 18V Lithium-Ion series, the world’s largest cordless tool line-up powered by an 18V Lithium-Ion slide-style battery. Makita 18V Lithium-Ion batteries have the fastest charge times in their categories, so they spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger.
For improved tool performance and extended battery life, Makita created Star Protection Computer Controls™. Star Protection is communication technology that allows the Star Protection-equipped tool and battery to exchange data in real time and monitor conditions during use to protect against overloading, over-discharging and overheating. For increased versatility, the tool can also be powered by Makita 18V LXT® and Compact Lithium-Ion batteries with the star symbol on the battery indicating Star Protection inside.
Makita-Built Motor Engineered for Versatile Power
The XLT01 features a Makita-built high torque motor that delivers 530 in. lbs. of Max Torque, 0-2,000 RPM’s, and 0-3,000 impacts per minute for a wide range of fastening tasks. Makita’s proprietary hammer and anvil impact mechanism are manufactured using the best raw materials with the highest quality steel and unique heat hardening process for maximum fastening and driving power.
Ergonomic Design in a Compact Size
The XLT01 weighs just 3.9 lbs. with over one foot of tool extension for extra reach into tough to reach spaces. The XLT01 is equipped with a soft grip handle and a large, conveniently located paddle switch for comfortable operation. The phosphorescent bumper ring is designed for quick location in dark spaces, and a built-in L.E.D. light illuminates the work surface for more efficient work. The convenient belt clip mounts on either side of the tool.
Versatile Design for a Range of Applications
Due to their versatility, impact drivers are gaining broader acceptance on jobsites for a wide range of fastening and loosening tasks. The XLT01 brings cordless impact power into tough to reach spaces. It is ideal for HVAC, installers, cabinet installation, assembly, electricians, automotive mechanics, woodworkers, and any pro contractor who requires a best-in-class engineered cordless angle impact driver.
